1 - [Michelle Williams aka "Mitch" - Closed Scene with Casper Alderidge]
Aina wriggled her hands while waiting for the signal from the director. She may have enough exposure in acting field but they’re mostly theatre plays and being part of a movie is something new. This is a first for her, and you can imagine how nervous she was even though the scene is with her real boyfriend. It should be easy peasy right? The scene is familiar to both of them having experienced almost the same thing in their previous classes together – during the time when Aina hated Ryan’s guts. She heaved a deep sigh and smiled at Ryan, there was this urge to say something, tease him about this, but her nervousness is not helping at all. The best thing she could do was smile in his direction and rehearsed the lines in her head. As the artsy kid, she’s wearing faded distressed jeans and long sleeves Hoodie button-up plaid shirt. To complete her getup, she wore the red cap and the headset. Seeing as they're about to start, she jogged toward the entrance area and glanced at the Director. She quickly fixed her hair which were loose on her shoulders. Once hearing the Director's signal to start, she closed her eyes first and summoned her acting skills. This is it! Opening her eyes again, she knew she's ready and in the zone!
Mitch’s family just moved in to Watfield because of her dad’s new job as College Dean, which made her the new girl in school. She took a deep breath while securing her book bag on her shoulder as she walked the path going to where the locker area is supposed to be located. Today was her first day in high school, something Mitch is not looking forward to. What she hates about being new? The stares she’s going to get once the other students realized she’s one of the new faces around the campus. To distract herself from stupid thoughts, she put on her headset and hit the play button of her mobile phone. As the song started playing, Mitch smiled and continued walking, mind slowly relaxing, effectively tuning out the outside noise and just started humming to herself. Her eyes swept around the campus, everything’s unfamiliar, everything’s new and hopefully she will not get lost finding the locker area. She noted a lot of things even the different groups everyone was in. Giving another sigh, the girl walked faster than ever, wanting to escape the scene she’s seeing because it reminds her that she doesn’t know anyone in this school. Finally reaching the locker area, Mitch looked for the number of the locker assigned to her and unlocked the door. She removed her bag, her head looking down as she tried to find the book she's planning to leave in her locker.

Ryan looked good in his basketball uniform. Truth be told, if they’re really in a muggle school right now, he will pass as a basketball player who is famous around the school. He always carries an air of confidence which annoyed her sometimes. It’s just naturally him to be confident in the way he carries himself. His character fits him right, but Aina will never admit that to him or else he'll be smug again and tease her about this the whole day. Mentally rolling her eyes, she let it go especially when she caught the smile he’s giving her. It’s enough to make her feel at ease with the scene they’re about to do.
You will hear the sound of the students laughing, chatting, and running around the school that time. It’s early in the day, everyone’s outside to enjoy the sun while studying and mostly just hanging around with their so-called school clique.
And where does Mitch fits into this? Nowhere. She’s the new girl, no friends… or maybe just one. Mira, their neighbour who is the same age as her, and also attending the same school so hopefully she’ll catch a glimpse of the other girl later. Too busy with her own thoughts, she completely missed the one who was tailing her until she reached the locker area. Finally opening the door, Mitch rummaged inside her bag to try to find the book she wanted to change with a new one which she needed for her first class - History. When suddenly, something hit her locker door followed by a loud bang. Mitch yelped and dropped her bag accidentally, causing all of the content of her bag to scatter on the floor. Due to shock, her heart beats erratically in her chest, her eyes were wide. Her blood boiled as she finally glanced at the culprit. “What the hell was that for, you idiot?!” and her cheeks flushed in anger, her hands balled into fists. Who does this guy thinks he is? He can’t just march in here and demanded for her name. “Go away, leave me alone.” And crouched low to get her belongings. Great! Just great!
The bell could be heard which signals the next class. All the students started going to their classrooms.
It’s just my first day and it’s already proven such a major disaster! Arrgg!! Mitch is fuming. She already has a pain in the ass twin brother to deal with at home and in school. And now…for the love of all that is holy, she would have to deal with this crap of a guy? Geesus save me from this hell! She was mentally rolling her eyes while getting her books and notes, not noticing her wallet fell near the guy’s feet which contains her personal information and photo ID.
Internally, Aina was amused because if they are in regular class, she would have punched Ryan by now. Or maybe stomp on his foot again like what she did to him during their Flying class.

Well, there goes my day. This is a complete disaster! Mitch grumbled angrily under her breath as she gathered her things which, thanks to this idiotic guy, were all scattered on the floor now. And now she needed to explain to her professor about her tardiness. She dumped all her things back to her bag with force and irritation she could muster while counting to ten in her head. Just having his presence there and she’s already about to be at the end of her rope. Her day is already getting out of hand and it’s still so early in the morning! What else could happen today?!
Mitch is already breathing fire, but it seemed the guy isn’t done yet. She’s in the process of closing her bag when she froze upon hearing her name. Not just the name, her full name. What the hell? How did he….? Her eyes landed on her wallet which the guy was currently holding. Oh shit! It slipped her mind; she didn’t even notice it’s missing while she’s grabbing her belongings on the floor. Mitch closed her bag, standing up quickly, she tried to snatch it from the guy’s grasp. “Hey, that’s mine, give it back!!” If looks could kill, the guy would have done by now because she’s really pissed. “Don’t make me repeat myself.” She warned him, growling in anger. Her other than is balling into fist again, already itching to punch him….any minute now.
In truth, Aina is a bit wary of whatever is going to happen next. She doesn’t doubt that she knows how to punch someone. Proof was the deformed nose of Ezra Stratton. That’s her masterpiece but she felt bad for the guy too, for a time but it was replaced with annoyance because of his overbearing nature. But anyway, stomping Ryan’s foot was easy to do before because she’s annoyed at him, but now that he’s her boyfriend, hurting him in any way is nowhere in her vocabulary.

[Catherine Blackwell] 
Ana had changed into her outfit for her character, her hair colored brownish-black and a mixture of straight and wavy as Cathy liked experimenting with her hair. It was different from the waves she had been given for the party. It was her scene where she had to play Cathy in a mood and had stayed away in the dressing room since morning, channeling her anger at various people to get into the mood. Ana didn't like her bipolar mood swings that the pages were filled. It left her exhausted and angry at people but this was her character and she couldn't drop it in the middle. The problem with playing such characters was, their after effect stayed with them even after practice and she had started making use of her ability by using the wind to blow out her anger. Once the crazy session was over, she would feel better. That morning she had been in such a good mood that it was hard to go back into the red zone but after thinking and stressing, she had finally reached the point of her anger, channeling Cathy and how she felt and she was ready to perform the scene.
Scene: Cathy runs to the ground after witnessing the boy she likes kissing her sister and has been swallowed by one of her moods. The wind around her whips angrily as her magic acts out.
Catherine liked guys, it was no secret but for some reason, they didn't like her. It was always Josie. Always. This was one time she had made it abundantly clear even the previous night at the party that she was interested in Raoul, giving him signals and flirting with him. He had seemed so interested in her so why? She felt a wave of anger spread through her as she raced to the grounds, the door banging shut with her magic. Her magic had never been stable, always too powerful for her due to the coven they came from and being the black sheep of the family, the twin siphoner who had no magic of her own but had stolen it from people of was given, Cathy's magic was always out of place, just like her mood. It always burst out like a balloon, blasting through the surrounding like a powerful light beam. Though she could perform all kinds of magic and wasn't limited to any element, her affinity had always been to the air so those spells came out perfect for her. And became the worst form of perfect when she was unleashing her anger. Just as she stood in the middle of the grounds, the trees around her whipped viciously, reacting to the air, her hair flying wildly as students ran inside, one of them to probably get a professor informing them that she was having her mood swings again.

Aina, on the other hand, also changed to her character’s outfit and this time, she has props with her, bow and arrow. For this scene, she will be working with Ana since their characters supposed to have the same special ability. Eira character is very different from Aina, tomboyish attitude and some badass woman while she’s softy, every inch a lady. It was such a challenge for her to move around like she’s someone whom you shouldn’t be messing with because any moment she can kick your ass for being a pain in her way. Although Aina can punch real good, the idiot Ezra knew that so much. The thought made her smile and cracked her knuckles without meaning to.
It was such a fine day, Eira decided to spend her time outside. She loves archery and whenever possible, she will practice her marksmanship. See, this is one of the few things she doesn’t like in her current school, they don’t have classes related to archery or hand-to-hand combat, dueling or even something related to weapons. In her former school, they have everything she needs, she just took advantage of it hence why she was kicked out. Until now she’s regretting what happened, if not for her stupidity, she would still have been in that school and not in this god forsaken school. It’s not really so bad here, but there are a lot of things she’s missing from her school, like their training courtyard where various archers were shooting arrows at targets, using their own bows. They usually have contest who can shoot as many bulls-eyes as they could. She just talked to another fairy who likes archery too and let her borrow the target board. She brought her bow and arrow with her to the school for this very same reason. Currently, Eira was pulling the bow string while concentrating on her target, her eyes never leaving the center red dot. She was about to release the arrow when the trees started shaking around her. “Whoaa!” Leaves were falling, lots of them and if this continues, the small tress will fall next. Eira stepped back and bought her bow and arrow to her side, suddenly alert. She will not be mistaken; this is wind power. Someone’s using it, but who… whirling around, she saw someone standing in the middle of the field. Some of the students started running inside the building in panic or fear, or maybe both. Being new, she didn’t know who that fairy is but she’s very powerful, that’s for sure. Eira ran to her direction and stood not far from the girl, not wanting to provoke her more. “You will have to calm down or you’ll hurt someone and destroy this place.”

As soon as the last scene ended, the stage was immediately transformed into different locations: Maria’s Bedroom, inside the apartment, out on the streets, outside of the pharmacy.
The music starts booming from the orchestra pit and the curtain slowly lifts to show everyone on stage as the song begins with the Jets.

(1 – Charlotte Montclaire/Baby Jane)
Some part of her was starting to get a lil' worked up. It was story that was starting to really get to her she guessed? The next few scenes were gonna be pretty exciting… and high on action. Charlie was excited to see everything unfold. Sure, she's seen it in rehearsals but things were different tonight. There was something unspoken in everyone… a tension surging through as they reached the climax of the story. Charlie was back in her overalls, sprinting toward the side of the stage with the others as they got ready. The stage was set differently now, with different areas depicting different parts of the neighborhood, strings of the music played was fraught with strain. Just by listening you can tell that something big was gonna happen.
Baby Jane was looking somber as she stood there with the rest of the gang for a moment. The sky was getting dark. The appointed hour was coming… and they've gotta go. Baby Jane straightened her clothes and her cap and then walked behind the others, looking absolutely dead serious. But beyond that as well as the pressure of the massive event, there was also some excitement. It was a thrill. Knowing that things were coming to a head. Up front, Riff lead the pack of them into battle.

(1 – Bethany Bott/Anita)
Bethy's got time after her previous scene to get ready for what the next one will bring so she took her sweet time, grabbing a cold drink to refresh herself, had her makeup retouched… basically everything she can do, she did. It wasn't that long of a break though and soon she found herself stripping off for something a lil' more… relaxed. It's a black nightgown made of lace and delicate organza. Anita was planning to get lucky and she couldn't help giggling at that then gave a deep sigh as she remembered the rest of the story. For now though, the primary emotion she needed was anticipation. Bethy was wearing a robe as she was ushered toward the side of the stage right as the stage went dark. Sets were quickly changed, depicting now different parts of the city, and she went to where her spot is supposed to be as the stage brightened back.
Anita sat down on her own bed, looking out through the open window, at the sunset. The sky was slowly darkening… and it was almost time now. Good, she thought, the sooner they can get it over with. She went on with her evening rituals, not knowing what's coming yet trusting with blind faith that things are gonna be alright. That everything's gonna work out. Anita didn't know anything… yet she hoped. Faith, hope and love - it was the main things which kept her going in life and that's what she held onto as she waited.

#1 – Ariadne Gladstone / Anybodys
Ariadne was really getting into the pace of things and she was seeing that the cast and crew were too. They are almost done with the first act and the rumble was coming up. This particular scene is one of her favorites mainly because of the song. It was a performance that includes almost everyone in the cast with a song that is intense. It was the last scene in the play that she could describe as light and after this, it will be a rollercoaster of emotions for the cast and the audience. Ariadne went to her place with the Jets. The stage was dark and the band started playing the song and the curtains parted.
This is the night that they’ve all been waiting for. After tonight, there will be no Sharks roaming the streets and Anybodys will be an official member of the Jets. Her whole existence depends on tonight and she will not let Riff down. She was taking up the rear for the Jets as they all walked on stage with serious faces. Riff was up front, leading them all.
